Before you know it you are going to have a whole new wardrobe.

Well I kinda do have a whole new mini Summer weardrobe. Many of the things were planned some time back so it is not like they are not needed. I am going to make a pair of pants this week that I planned to make last Fall. I went to the retreat with a list of patterns, yardage requirements and type of fabric for the trip we took to SAS. Everyone else was buying quilting cotton and I spent $94 of the $100 I planned to spend and only got 1 piece of quilting cotton. I spent most of the trip looking at all the other fabrics and ended up with a suitcase packed with clothing fabrics....................now I am slowly sewing those up. All but 3 fabrics were preplanned and I have already sewn up one of the unplanned items. When I think about it I sewed clothes most of my younger life and really enjoyed the process from planning to being able to wear the finished item. I really have a stash big enough that I will not run out of fabric for a very long time...............I will run out of thread first but so far doing good in that department as well.

We had several of those little things...red clear thing, a door peekthru, etc. Another thing you can do is take a black/white pic on your phone so you can look at just the values

Finally got in to your blog again.  That Carpenter's Wheel turned out beautifully.  Glad you went forward and got the top finished.  Can't wait to see how you quilt it.  Loved the quilting on your improv quilt also.

I just now remembered that I have a piece of red plastic ... a product that was marketed as a "Ruby Beholder". 

I use mine all the time.  I also have a green piece that I use if the fabric is a shade of red.  Hope you found yours.

The illusion still works!  

For it to work, you have to know you are looking for a 3-D cube.  I could see it but I had to work at it.

We have a 2 story house and in one area the walls are the full 2 stories.

Hate to think of you being on a ladder up that high.  It's a job I would hire someone younger to do.   Oh, yeah.  You are younger than I.stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes

I'm not young enough.  I leaned over the top railing and did the edging and was fine with that and I'm fine on the 8 foot ladder.  That big ladder though?  I did one section and was like, "Nope, I'm out."

Thank you Cathy...............I can't wait to see it quilted either, hopefully sooner than later.

I’ve done the black and white to determine values.  When I discuss values in classes, it can be helpful for those that just can’t seem to see values.  Taking out the color helps them see in a different way.
